Booklist Reviews 2017 October #1

Following the events of The Initiation (2016), James, his little sister, Moira, and Sherlock sink deep into hidden clues at Baskerville Academy and at home in Boston as they investigate James and Moira's father's accidental death. Over Christmas vacation, Sherlock has solved a clue left behind in a desk drawer, but that brings more questions than answers. Halting their progress is James' involvement with a secret society, the Scowerers, at school, whose assignments are, to say the least, concerning. As James grows more and more distant, Moira feels she can only trust Sherlock, a move she hopes she won't regret. There's adventure aplenty, and the ending is left open for sequels that will likely further young Moriarty's progress from schoolboy to famed villain. Modern Sherlock adaptations can be a hard sell to the middle-grade crowd, and most won't get the sly jokes and references to the original works. Still, Sherlock's characterization is spot-on, though, and that alone will keep readers coming back for more. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Following The Initiation, twelve-year-old Moria Moriarty returns as narrator of her brother James's partnership with his Baskerville Academy roommate, Sherlock Holmes. The trio investigates the death of Mr. Moriarty and uncovers rival criminal organizations, all while juggling new romantic interests. With clever references to Doyle's originals, genre fans should enjoy this modern-day Boston-based reimagining of the rise of Holmes's arch-nemesis. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
